The Chafford Hundred Teaching School Hub is working with TAP - Teaching Apprenticeship Programme - to help more teachers get into the profession.
National Apprenticeships Week
To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we will be hosting a webinar for schools every day from 7th-11th February!
Please join us for one of our live webinars and we will discuss how the Teaching Apprenticeship programme works and how we can support your school in 2022 to develop your own teaching talent in a cost-effective way. You will also be able to hear from key stakeholders connected with the programme.
When you attend a webinar during National Apprenticeship Week and book a follow up 30-minute consult with an e-Qualitas ITT Advisor, your school will secure access to a 100% online, Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) Course, normally valued at £1,200 +VAT.SKEs allow you to upskill staff members in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology or English, and courses start weekly.
All public sector bodies have been given a target that 2.3% of their workforce should be made up of apprentices, however many schools are still unaware that you can use your apprenticeship levy for ITT. This school-centred route into teaching not only goes towards hitting your target but also provides an inexpensive way to “grow your own” teachers who can fulfil up to 80% of a timetable.

The Teaching Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) makes it easy for schools to use their apprenticeship levy to recruit, train and retain the best graduates as home-grown teachers.
1) ATTRACT THE BEST GRADUATES & GROW YOUR OWN TALENT
Teaching Apprenticeships can help you recruit and retain the best graduates as home-grown teachers for the future, as well as offering a path to QTS for existing unqualified members of staff.
2) TUITION FEES ARE COVERED BY YOUR APPRENTICESHIP LEVY
Graduates will train on-the-job to gain QTS at no cost to them – the cost of the ITT is covered by your schools Apprenticeship Levy
3) EXTREMELY COST EFFECTIVE DUE TO SALARY GRANTS AND LEVY FUNDING
Trainees are able to teach up to 80% of the timetable, and salary grants for schools that have trainees in shortages subjects mean that you can save money when you enrol an unqualified member of staff on the programme!
4) HIGH QUALITY TRAINING TAILORED TO THE INDIVIDUAL
We are the largest provider of teaching apprenticeships in the country and have been delivering SCITT programmes for over 20 years. We always endeavour to deliver high quality, individualised training programmes that work for our trainees and our schools
At the end of the programme, your school benefits from a fully qualified home-grown teacher – with retention rates of 82%, the majority of trainees on the Teaching Apprenticeship Programme continue working at the school they trained within
